I think this is a bug...

I'm not sure about this patch.

When I look at that sub,

sub on_recv_from_client {
    my ($self, $conn) = @_;

    my $to = $self->to_jid;
    if (! $to || $conn->vhost->uses_jid($to)) {


That seems to say, if there's no 'to' attribute, it's obviously intended
for the server, not another user.  But if the 'to' is there, and the vhost
uses that JID to represent itself (as opposed to handles_jid, which means
the vhost's domain is the same as the 'to' domain... like the vhost for
livejournal.com 'handles' brad at livejournal.com), then that means the same
thing as no 'to' attribute, and the server should process it.

What IQ packet XML are you seeing that's spinning the server?
